Day 2: How to avoid clicking bad ads
1. Are there females used in the ad you're looking at? If so, it might be best to just ignore the ad altogether. The use of females is an easy ploy to get people to click ads.
2. If the ad is still for something you're looking for, check the ages of the females in the picture. If a girl younger than 15 is used, the ad is most likely legit.
3. Check what clothes the people are wearing. If they're tank tops, tube tops, spaghetti straps, or anything along those lines, the ad is most likely a malicious one. Best to avoid it.
4. Last but not least, always check Google first before clicking on an ad. Just Google source of the image you see, or use Tineye Reverse Image (http://www.tineye.com/) search to see the exact product.
Have fun clicking appropriate ads, everyone.
